When we are running or working out, what else can we listen to except for music? Most people will choose audiobooks and Amazon's Audible will be the best choice. While Apple Watch owners can have the benefits to the Audible app on their devices, the app is still not available on more popular smartwatches, such as those running on Wear OS.

"I've been using Audible since around 2017, and love the quality and selection of audiobooks on the service. With the release of Wear OS 3 on the Google Pixel Watch, the Samsung Galaxy Watches 4/5, and others, Android users such as myself finally have viable, non-fragmented smartwatch options. The user base is growing as is support on the platform, and developing a Wear OS app would help attract those users to your service as a cross-platform solution to their needs. I know I would love to listen to audiobooks on a run, for instance." - Reddit

Audible app is still one of the much-requested features on the Wear OS smartwatch. Now in 2022, it's still not available through a software update. It's disappointing that Wear OS never supported the Audible app, but we've set out to find some alternative methods to put your favorite Audible titles to your Wear OS. You'll just need to transfer your downloaded audiobook file to an audio file format that's compatible with the Wear OS. After that, you can start to transfer the files to your Wear OS smartwatch and play the files there.
